Madagascar was just an absolutely incredible experience 🇲🇬 So grateful for the opportunity, and the amazing team I got to share it with ❤️
Ещё не покрылась рябью Фонтанка,
Ещё не нагрелся гранит.
Быть может пролетит одинокая чайка
А может случайный прохожий,
Пораньше с утра проспешит.
Ещё не проснулся город,
Ещё не пришла суета.
Ещё полчаса до работы,
Но солнце говорит нам - пора.... Старо-Калинкин мост.
"The Old Rail Bridge of Camus”
This stunning old rusty railway bridge was constructed over the ‘River Mourne’ in 1911. It was part of the ‘Great Northern Railway’ line (GNR) that was established throughout Ireland in 1883. This bridge was once a major part of the Industrial Era that has long since gone. Sadly after 75 years of service the ‘Great Northern Railway’ shut down operations in 1966 🚂
Irish landscapes are my passion, although I sometimes find myself hiking straight through them towards old abandoned houses & rusty bridges etc. There’s just something about abandonment & natural decay that draws me to include these structures into my scenes. I believe that these areas were stunning looking long before man built on them. Years later they were swiftly abandoned by us so nature slowly moves in & does her job once again. It doesn’t take long for mother nature to reclaim her lands & it’s this in between time when plants, wildlife & rust take hold. This is the time that I believe man-made structures look most appealing 🛤
Nature always attempts to blend with mankind’s buildings, so I’m happy that we have finally taken a leaf from this book & are now constructing our future buildings to also blend in with our natural surroundings, whilst minimising our footprint on the land that we are mere guests on....
